Policing (London) (2 Dec 1994)

Mr Bernie Grant: The Home Secretary will know that I asked him a question earlier this week about stops and searches. I asked whether records were kept of those who are stopped and searched, but not arrested. The Home Secretary replied to the effect that that was a matter for the chief constable of each area. May I ask the Minister, as he is the police authority for London, specifically in relation to the...

Return of Cultural Objects (14 Feb 1994)

Mr Bernie Grant: I had not intended to speak, but the comments of the hon. Member for Twickenham (Mr. Jessel) aroused my anger. He said that, if artefacts were returned to their country of origin, the number of visitors and the income that they bring to this country would disappear. Perhaps the countries from which the artefacts came should receive that income instead of us. He also said that some countries...

Return of Cultural Objects (14 Feb 1994)

Mr Bernie Grant: Far be it from me to suggest such an appalling thing, but there are those who will say that the ways in which certain articles have been acquired leave a lot to be desired. The House would do a great service to people around the world if it were to investigate the ways in which some artefacts were gathered and came to be displayed in the British museum. I also mention in passing the Crown...

Return of Cultural Objects (14 Feb 1994)

Mr Bernie Grant: Is the Labour party still committed to the return of the Elgin marbles?

Return of Cultural Objects (14 Feb 1994)

Mr Bernie Grant: Is that the only way in which artefacts could be returned to their country of origin after the regulations are agreed? Could they be returned by normal negotiations and so on? For example, do the Elgin marbles have to fit into the categories that the hon. Gentleman stated?

Opposition Day: Children's Homes (Streatham) (20 Jan 1994)

Mr Bernie Grant: I did not intend to speak, but I was concerned at the way in which my hon. Friend the Member for Streatham (Mr. Hill) introduced the debate. He talks about evidence, but gives us none. I understand that there are 14 or 15 black children involved, and that the homes are owned by black proprietors. I also understand that the police and the assistant director of social services in Lambeth are...

Opposition Day: Children's Homes (Streatham) (20 Jan 1994)

Mr Bernie Grant: Is the Minister aware that he is discussing 15 black children, and that the homes are owned by black people? The people in those homes regard the matter as nothing other than a racist attack on the children and on the homes themselves. Does the Minister agree that the so-called evidence that my hon. Friend the Member for Streatham (Mr. Hill) has given has amounted to nothing? If crimes have...

Opposition Day: Children's Homes (Streatham) (20 Jan 1994)

Mr Bernie Grant: Will my hon. Friend give way?

Opposition Day: Children's Homes (Streatham) (20 Jan 1994)

Mr Bernie Grant: Will my hon. Friend give way?

Orders of the Day — Opposition Day: Immigration (20 Jul 1993)

Mr Bernie Grant: rose—

Orders of the Day — Opposition Day: Immigration (20 Jul 1993)

Mr Bernie Grant: I thank the Minister for his generosity in giving way. I note that the rules for admission to the United Kingdom make an exception in the visa requirements for people from Croatia and Slovenia. Why is that exemption granted, when people from other parts of former Yugoslavia must have visas?

Orders of the Day — Reinsurance (Acts of Terrorism) Bill (13 May 1993)

Mr Bernie Grant: I, too, welcome the opportunity to raise matters pertaining to insurance in this debate. It is clear from the number of hon. Members who have remained to take part in the debate that the subject is serious, especially because the problems of Northern Ireland are now transferring to the mainland. Many people are extremely concerned about what is happening. I have no time for terrorism, as I...

Orders of the Day — Reinsurance (Acts of Terrorism) Bill (13 May 1993)

Mr Bernie Grant: I thank the Minister for that. I understand and support what the Bill is doing. What I am demonstrating to the Minister is that there is a loophole in insurance law generally. I do not say that an amendment could not be tabled—I do not know how things are done —but, although I support the Bill, I am suggesting that this is something else to be looked at. Not only have problems...

Orders of the Day — Reinsurance (Acts of Terrorism) Bill (13 May 1993)

Mr Bernie Grant: Minicab drivers can obtain either comprehensive or third party insurance for their cabs. Drivers with third party insurance are unable to claim compensation from the insurance companies in such cases because third party insurance relates to someone other than the insured. Later in the debate I hope to raise cases which have occurred recently in my constituency. Will the Government consider...

Business of the House (11 Mar 1993)

Mr Bernie Grant: Will the Leader of the House find time next week for a debate on racism in British society? Has he seen my early-day motion 1527 about the conduct of his hon. Friend the Member for Bridlington (Mr. Townend), who last week on television talked about niggers in a woodpile? [That this House is appalled by the use of the term 'nigger in a woodpile' by the honourable Member of Bridlington on BBC...

Orders of the Day — European Communities (Amendment) Bill: MR. MICHAEL MORRIS in the Chair (28 Jan 1993)

Mr Bernie Grant: I agree with my hon. Friend's interpretation. The threats talked about by Le Pen, Jacques Chirac and others are posed by people of a different colour and culture. Is that not borne out by the fact that it is the clear intention to expand the EC to take on board countries such as Russia, Czechoslovakia and Poland, so that the people of those countries will not be seen as a threat? Therefore,...

Orders of the Day — European Communities (Amendment) Bill: MR. MICHAEL MORRIS in the Chair (28 Jan 1993)

Mr Bernie Grant: What is even more outrageous is that, in discussing Maastricht and all its industrial political and economic ramifications, the British Government have not even thought about the effect of the treaty and the Single European Act on black British citizens. Is that not a dereliction of duty?

Orders of the Day — European Communities (Amendment) Bill: Treaty on European Union (27 Jan 1993)

Mr Bernie Grant: Surely the only way in which immigration officers can exercise some control at the ports of entry is by looking at the colour of a person and stopping all those who do not look white—stopping people like me—and asking them to produce a passport. That is the only way in which they can do it.

Orders of the Day — European Communities (Amendment) Bill: Treaty on European Union (27 Jan 1993)

Mr Bernie Grant: Is my hon. Friend aware of the debates that took place in the Committee considering the Asylum and Immigration Appeals Bill on the removal of visitors' right of appeal? When we did a trawl of practice in European countries, we found that Britain was the only country that had the right of visitors to appeal enshrined in law. In other countries, that right was on an ad hoc basis and in some did...

Orders of the Day — European Communities (Amendment) Bill: Treaty on European Union (27 Jan 1993)

Mr Bernie Grant: I do not wish to misunderstand my hon. Friend. I understand that he agrees with the procedure, but does he agree with the. principle of a common visa? As I understand it, a person prevented from obtaining a visa to enter any one European country cannot enter any of the other countries.
